The demand for electronic devices like telephones, tablets and computers is still growing and will grow further in the future. All these devices contain electronic components, which are placed on printed circuit boards (PCBs). The assembly of a PCB is performed by several machines in an assembly line. As the accurate placement of several...

The phreatic surface is an important factor of influence on the stability and therefore the safety of regional flood defences. For stability calculations usually a schematisation of the phreatic surface is used, based on the geometry of the flood defence and the water levels. The influence of precipitation and evapotranspiration is not...

In geological models, 3D surfaces are used for representing subsurface structures and the interfaces between stratigraphic layers. Simulations based on this data require the surfaces to accurately describe how geological layers are connected in order to produce valuable results. Due to the process through which this data is acquired and...

Increasing renewable electricity production calls for innovative methods to store electricity as well as a desire for electrification of processes that currently rely on fossil fuels. Zero Emission Fuels is a company that is developing a system to convert carbon dioxide and water from the air into methanol, a liquid hydrocarbon fuel, using...

In the informal settlements of Indonesia the housing quality is of poor condition, but the community is strong. Especially the buildings that were build on the river banks are often in poor and dangerous condition. By introducing a new framework for building near the river, the overall quality of the kampong can be upgraded. The concept is to...

Airlines experience schedule disruptions on a daily basis. Poor weather conditions, unscheduled aircraft maintenance and congested air spaces are just a few of the causes that prevent airlines from operating their flight schedules as planned. In the third quarter of 2017 over 20% of all scheduled flights in Europe suffered from delays. Operation...

This paper addresses the connection between circular building design and residential health and well-being. The general research objective is to determine assessment criteria for the performance of indoor partitioning products in a circular model. The overarching aim is to establish a more integrated and inclusive approach to the transition from...

Cavity optomechanics studies the interaction between mechanical resonators and optical cavities through radiation pressure forces and aims to harness this interaction for applications in the areas of high precision metrology, tests of fundamental quantum mechanics, or quantum information processing. For the most ambitious of these applications...

In this thesis, we design control algorithms for power scheduling of a fleet of fuel cell cars in a microgrid. Fuel cell cars are a relatively new type of vehicles. The driving force of these cars comes from an electrical motor and in order to generate the required electricity for the operation of the motor, the vehicle is equipped with a fuel...

In this thesis we address the problem of estimating a curve of interest (which might be a probability density, a failure rate or a regression function) under monotonicity constraints. The main concern is investigating large sample distributional properties of smooth isotonic estimators, which have a faster rate of convergence and a nicer...

The electrostatics has effect on conductance of nanowire devices. In this model electrostatics are described by nonlinear coupling of the Poisson and the Schr¨odinger equations. In presence of magnetic and electric field and spin-orbit interaction, conductance develops a feature called the helical gap. This gap is characterised by a drop of...

Hydrological modifications to the natural flow regime through the regulation of a river threaten the integrity of river ecosystems. In Myanmar, the exponentially growing hydropower sector poses a threat to the ecohydrology of some of the last large free-flowing rivers in the world. This study investigates to what extent the natural flow regime...

This graduation project is related to macular degeneration. Macular degeneration affects the macula, a central pit on the retina which is responsible for the highest visual acuity due to the densely packed cone photoreceptors. Symptoms of macular degeneration can vary in the early stage from blurred vision to abnormal dark adaptation (Jager et...

With the global increase in passenger traffic and growing popularity of long-haul routes over the Asia Pacific region and Atlantic Ocean, the possibility for hypersonic transport could become an attractive option to reduce flight time over long distance from 16-20 hours down to around 4-5 hours. In this thesis, a Multi-Disciplinary Optimisation...

Understanding the erosion process of sand will help improve dredging projects. Pickup functions are used to predict the amount of sand that can be eroded by a flow with certain parameters. The most common functions that are used have been validated to data in the low velocity regime (θ < 1). However, modern day dredging processes are in the...

A belt conveyor system is a commonly used mean of transportation for dry bulk material. The system components are subjected to wear because of the multiple rotating components. This will result in component failures on the long run. Maintenance or replacement actions are required for these components in order to prevent these system failures. In...

Molecular self-assembly has been realized as a powerful approach to control the organization of materials from molecular to macroscopic length scale. While for a long time molecular self-assembly has focused on the investigation of systems involving a single component and under thermodynamic equilibrium. In recent years the interests are...
